General Election: Pray your part!

The General Election will be a moment for the nation to ask important questions about the future. Pray Your Part is an invitation from the bishops of the Church of England to encourage prayer and participation in the life of our nation and communities, both as voters and as citizens.

Pray your part logo

This 21-day journey of prayer and reflection (from Friday, 14 June until Election Day on 4 July) is designed for use in the run-up to the UK General Election. Each day explores a different theme, with a short Bible reading, reflection and prayer for a different aspect of our common life.

Church Stonework & Repointing

We are exploring whether the church could be put on the heritage "at risk" register, an official acknowledgement that the church needs repairs so that it does not deteriorate.

All donations are still "gratefully received". There is still a need to prioritize the most urgent work. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support . . .
